baker had with george bush because -- i don't know exactly the reason, but i said, for example, the other day, the national security adviser went to moscow to meet with the russian president has started arranging a relationship. if i was secretary of state would not have tolerated that. that is my job. and as national security adviser , you're a staff person, not a principle. i remember when general powell got the role. he understood. he came around to me and said, i am a member of your staff. obviously the president is my main guy, but my job is to staff the council. and so i think that is beginning to get out of kilter. in my book have quite a lot to say about the structural governance and how it is going, i think, in the wrong direction. >> host: secretary george shultz, a couple more issues on your mind. number one, demographics. you're worried about demographics. >> guest: i'm not worried. an observant. i see that the demographics of the world had changed and are continuing to change rapidly. the developed countries basically have no fertility. they are getting to be older

at two other instances in which an american president used force, in the case of george bush in iraq, he had a congressional authorization and one u.n. resolution. in syria he has, president obama has neither of those but i think the u.s. congress and many in the need yaw are saying, what about libya? i mean we went to war in libya without a congressional authorization. we spent one billion dollars. we had 220 tomahawk missile strikes, et cetera, et cetera. what do we have at the end of it? we have benghazi with dead american ambassador and three diplomats and a country not really controlled by its own government. are we any better off? so there is so much skepticism as lauren pointed out, within the media but it mostly is based on america's previous experiences using force projecting force, mostly on its own. jon: let me take you to the second part of that charles krauthamer column because he touches on some of those points that you just made, judy. he also wrote last year, mr. obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. this year he grandly declared that the entire war o
